Rolling pin cover from pantyhose?

Has anyone tried this? I heard of it somewhere but I just can't think of where. I want to get a real cover and cloth to roll on but can't afford it now.
Any thoughts?

Could you elaborate suzi? What is a rolling pin cover? Is it not just for storage?

LOL, no I guess it's sort of a canvas or flour sack type material that goes over the pin and then a sheet on the counter to roll onto, and the pie dough wont stick.
I've been getting better at my pie crusts not sticking anyway, but I always wanted to give the cloth set a try.

I have a pastry cloth, and rolling pin cover, and they were worth every cent. A new dishtowel would work for the pastry cloth, but I am not sure about the panty hose. Does a cover cost that much? (Mine is about twenty years old.)

Ah. Thanks for the explanation suzi. You had me completely baffled there for a minute. I say just flour your pin and counter well and you don't need any other gadget. I have a marble pin that I love, but I still wish I could have nabbed my Baba's rolling pin before one of my sisters did dang it.

I doubt they cost much but I'm sorta in a spot where anything extra is extra.....
And I like to keep that $$ for yarn and extra ingredients!

I hear you Suzi, and would feel the same, but when I bought them I was working full time, and made pie mostly for special occasions, when things would not work as they should. Today, I sometimes use them, sometimes not, but when company is due, I use them and they have saved me from disaster at times. Somehow when you have four things to do, and a time limit, ingredients just don't go together quite the way they should.

How in the world did our Babas (grandmas) manage to cook amazing foods without all the gadgets we have today? And yet I am not anywhere close to how great my grandma was.
